Magic Cookie Bars

In just about every school, church, and fundraiser cookbook there are magic bars listed as a favorite dessert! 

I believe the original recipe was marketed by Eagle Brand condensed milk.

The recipe was plastered on their label back in the 60’s (the decade I was born in), and has been an American favorite treat ever since.

Of course there are lots of variations that have developed over the years.

Some recipe bars add peanut butter chips, M&M candies, pecan nuts, and whatever other delicious treats you can think of layering on top of the basic recipe.

Original Magic Cookie Bars

I’ve always kept true to the original recipe.

The old fashioned five layered bar; graham cracker crust, sweetened condensed milk, coconut, nuts, and chocolate chips.

Wait. Just one minute… since these bars were developed in the 60’s when I was born we shall not be referring to the original recipe as old-fashioned EVER AGAIN. 

These bars are Classic, popular, trendy, and completely in vogue

Sounds so much hipper, right?!

Sugar Free Magic Cookie Bars

Completely addictive and that fact that every bite makes you want to do the happy food dance, these cookies must be called magical because “classic” bars like these are always the first to disappear.

First you have a full platter, and then POOF they disappear!

I usually reserve baking these treats for the holidays adding them to my cookie trays.

They’re super rich, crazy-crazy sweet, and so worth a holiday cookie splurge, and also worthy of a little sugar-free update.

After making homemade condensed milk, magic bars is one of the desserts that were on my must make list.

The results are delicious!

With some ingredient tweaks and a little recipe magic, I’ve updated these Low Sugar Magic Cookie Bars to be just as rich and delicious as the original version.

The difference between this recipe and the “classic” is that I cut out ALL granulated sugar.

I used my homemade sugar free condensed milk, unsweetened coconut flakes, and chocolate baking chips sweetened with stevia.

These are deliciously decadent without all the sugar.

Still has calories, so don’t go wild, but enjoy these Low Sugar Magic Cookie Bars all year long!
